Dissertation Question Time: Supporting the Dissertation Project through Peer Advice

Emily Claire Danvers

Abstract


Dissertation question time is a model for a workshop provided by the central academic skills department at Brunel and used to support dissertation writing. The analysis of the use of the model with students and their feedback raises interesting questions about peer learning and advice giving as a pedagogical method, especially when supporting researchers. The research focuses on the delivery of the dissertation question time workshop and the analysis of student feedback and follow up interviews. The positive impact of the workshop upon studentsââ¬â¢ understanding of the research processes led to in becoming an important aspect of central support provision for dissertation writing and research.
